Letters from St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, to St. Sabinus, Bishop of Placentia (Piacenza). The letters speak of Paradise, book editing, bad handwriting, good doctrine, and long distance friendship. Ambrose signs off with variations on his usual farewell to friends and family: "Love me, for I love you."
Ambrosius, governor of Milan, was elected bishop by acclamation of the people. He lost his civil office, was baptized, received his first communion and holy orders, and was consecrated bishop, all on the same day in AD 374. He faced down emperors, composed hymns, converted St. Augustine, and served Milan until he died on April 4th, 397.
